    Is platelet count of 469 a cause for concern?

Posted on Wed, 9 Aug 2017 in Blood Disorders
Question: Is 469 a high platlet count? I am reading my CBC lab results and I was worried since it says "out of range" should I be worried? Also when I called the doctors office his assistant only mentioned I was low in vitamin d. She said "everything else was normal" despite the reading.

Brief Answer:
Hello. No it is normal

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear. I have gone through the details. So some labs report a range upto 450 thousand. The normal count we take is upto 500 thousand. Platelet count can increase or decrease even by stress, or any infection.
No need to worry.
Thanks and regards
